Eames Soft Pad Lounge Chair At A Glance:
The Eames Soft Pad Lounge Chair is one luxurious lounger. With a lightweight aluminum frame and 2"-thick upholstered cushions the Soft Pad Lounge Chair is designed for rest and relaxation. The 1/2" glides let you safely use this lounge chair on hard floors and carpet while the 5-star base provides support, stability and style. The lounge chair's sleek base contrasts with the fabric upholstery, creating a piece that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. The Eames Soft Pad Lounge Chair is available in a variety of beautiful fabrics that look and feel great.

This lounge chair was made just for the home. While it has uses in the office environment, Charles and Ray wanted to get away from the strictly corporate tone of the executive and management chairs and get into something more homey, more relaxing, and more comfortable. The Soft Pad Lounge Chair is just that. Using the same materials as the other chairs in the series, soft fabric and polished aluminum elegantly padded with 2" upholstered cushioning, the lounge chair goes to a different place. Rather than convey seriousness, business, and authority, this chair conveys relaxation, rest, and fellowship.

What's To Like:
The Eames Soft Pad Lounge Chair is reclined, unlike the other chairs in the series (which can recline, but aren't permanently set in that position). It's also got a much longer back, more cushions, and a generally more stretched out feel. It also has an ottoman, to allow the chair to serve in much the same way as a traditional recliner would. This is a chair you can kick back in, eat in while you watch the game, sleep in when you need a quick nap, read in, watch movies and TV in, etc. Anything you'd want to do in your living room or family space, this beautiful, comfortable chair can do with you. The ottoman that comes with the chair is given the same treatment as the rest of the chairs in the series. It's beautifully upholstered in soft fabric and framed in polished aluminum. The effect is stunning. This is an elegant lounge chair that you can be in-elegant in - a lounge chair with all the history of tradition of Charles and Ray Eames and Herman Miller that can also serve as a place to nap in your pajamas.

The Bottom Line:
Wherever you use the Eames Soft Pad Lounge Chair, it's going to keep you comfortable and in style. And that describes the perfect lounge chair. It also meshes well with most design schemes; the colors are muted and the materials fit well in nearly any environment. But this chair could also work in your bedroom, or in your kids' room or guest room; anywhere where someone might want to take a break from their day and simply relax, read, or think. Always comfortable and always beautiful, it's a chair anyone can enjoy.

Design Story
The Aluminum Group initially was designed for Irwin Miller, founder of Cummins Engines, in Columbus, Indiana. Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard designed the Miller home and challenged Charles and Ray Eames to develop a high-quality seating product for outdoor use.

Known for their honest use of materials, the Eameses constructed the chairs with cast aluminum and first conceived of a seat frame to support stretched fabric--a synthetic mesh (woven saran). Although the mesh was discontinued shortly after its introduction, Herman Miller reintroduced a new mesh material for the Aluminum Group in 2001. Called Cygnus, it is similar to the Aeron chair's Pellicle fabric in its aeration and translucent qualities.

The seat-back suspension was a major technical achievement and represented a departure from the concept of the chair as a solid shell.

Wonderfully comfortable, the chairs became the basis for several other Eames designs, including the Soft Pad chair group.

This is a chair meant clearly for the home. It's the biggest in the collection, with the most padding and the longest back. It's also set in a permanent recline, making it great for leisure activities like reading, watching TV or movies, or just taking a quick nap. This isn't a chair that really has much of a home in the office, and it's clearly meant for the living room. The matching ottoman (sold separately) is handsome and comfy as well, and it's as close to a recliner as you can get while still remaining fine furniture.
